About the tour

Ueno Park is one of the most popular areas in Tokyo, for both locals and tourists. Once a part of the vast ground of Kan-eiji Buddhist temple, Ueno Park is today the home of culture: there are museums, a university, a zoo and historical spots. On this tour you will walk through this beautiful and interesting area, stopping by a brilliant shrine with gold leaf and elaborate carvings, and a charming temple with a splendid view. If you are lucky, you may hear the serene sounds of the temple bell, which bring you back to the atmosphere of the samurai era.
